Zero Hedge: Was the price of Ukraine's 'liberation' the loss of its gold to the Fed?


10:15p ET Monday, March 10, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Zero Hedge tonight comments trenchantly on the possible odyssey of Ukraine's gold reserves, concluding about the Ukrainians:

"We hope, for their sake, they weren't also just 'liberated' of all their gold, which after a brief stay 80 feet below the surface at 33 Liberty St., will promptly find its way either to the Bundesbank or to the billionaire oligarchs, based either in London or elsewhere, and currently in charge of 'post-liberation' Ukraine.

"Finally, putting this into perspective, 40 tons of gold is roughly what China imports every 10 days."

Zero Hedge's commentary is headlined "Was the Price Of Ukraine's 'Liberation' the Handover of Its Gold to the Fed?" and it's posted here:
